Kirkham Family Photos

Ryan and Jamie asked me to take their family photos and I hope they don't mind that I posted these. Using the "shotgun" approach to make up for my lack of talent, I found quite a few out of the dozens I took that turned out good. These are three of them. The Kirkhams are easy on the eyes that's for sure.

Happy Birthday Andrea

I have been accused of tinkering with photoshop
but I am an amateur as Andrea's self-prepared birthday card shows. That chick is good! I stole this from her website so check out her pictures at

The Game's Over :(

I had a few other pictures I was going to post if BYU won, so in the interest of fairness (which BYU fans epitomize) I am posting these instead. The U barely pulled this one off!

I Wonder Who Will Win

Utah or BYU

Kirsten in Carlsbad California

That is a real frog and then for Halloween Kirsten carved her pumpkin in memory of her 1 year aniversary of her run in with Bells Palsy. And as you can see from the last picture that Kirsten is past her 9 month mark!!

Shawn and Lincoln

I have been taking pictures of the primary kids for Christmas and once in a while I get some willing subjects.

I have to say Lincoln is a total stud. If there aren't dozens of 18 month old girls lined up for this little dude I would be shocked.

Full Moon In Manti

I heard on the news that this full moon is called the Beaver Moon by the local Indian tribes. I was happy, (still, two days later), that my camera is fixed and I had the tripod in the Yukon.

My Camera Is Repaired

My camera was unwittingly used in a domestic violence situation (you'll have to ask Andrea Christensen about that) and the power supply assembly was damaged. Luckily it was still under warranty and Canon repaired and returned it within 9 days. No more photography drought. I'm happy.

November 10, 2008 Happy Birthday Marines

November 10, 2008 is the 233rd birthday of the Marine Corps and this day is celebrated in every corner of the world where Marines find themselves. Whether in war or peace all Marines stop for a few minutes and salute all of those who went before us. Tradition is a cornerstone of service in the Marine Corps. We are who we are because of those who went before. "From the Halls of Montezuma, to the Shores of Tripoli", from the black sand beaches of Iwo Jima to the dusty sand of Fallujah Iraq, from the frozen shores of Chosin Reservoir to the high mountain valleys of Afghanistan, the Marines have served with distinction and valor and have left precious blood in all of those far away places. Not for their own glory but because they were called upon by our country to keep us safe in times of terror and in defense of all we hold dear and even sometimes take for granted. I assure you that the double talk of so many of our politicians is not lost on them. How can anyone say they support our troops but not their cause. The arrogance drips from that statement. How can anyone look our Marines in the eye after their 3rd or 4th tour in Iraq and say they support them, but the friends you left behind and the blood they spilled is all for naught. The taste of freedom has a flavor to those who served that the protected will never know. Happy birthday Marines, God bless you.

Michael's Road Trip

Michael and his friend Wes finally returned from their extended road trip to Sulpher, LA and Kingwood (Houston) TX. I still don't know how you can be driving from Texas to Utah, get lost in New Mexico, think you are in Colorado and end up in Nevada. No lie.
